Healthy Solution

Has anybody else looked at or previously done the 'healthy solution' 4 week reintroduction to food, the Exante equivalent to Lighter Life's Route to Management?

Looking online it's so vague and there's a few contradictions e.g. In the 'add a meal' week you are allowed mushrooms, but on the healthy solution your not allowed mushrooms until week 2...doesn't make much sense!

I'm hoping to finish Exante in 2 weeks or so, and am keen to not put the weight back on, but feel a bit unsure about what to do!

Any help much appreciated :)

How are you finding Exante Hannah?
I have to say I'm thinking of switching mainly for financial reasons but I'm scared I won't cope with no support and no real RTM.
